As we move forward in life and progress towards greatness, we must also remember those who came before us. Rather than pushing aside the old for a new way of life, perhaps all that we can do is look kindly upon those who lived with great strength and balance. These portraits are a flow of energy, of grace, inspiring greatness, strength and persistence. A greatness within humanity as a whole, as one.
“The thought which this picture is meant to convey is that the Indians, as a race already shorn of their tribal strength, and stripped of their primal dress, are passing into the darkness of an unknown future.”
– Edward S Curtis, 1904
